Hi Elia, The reason as to why those sections are greyed out and you can't use them is because those section will not work on the page/template you're currently viewing. For example, Posts Info section will only work when viewing one of your Posts. The 404 section is only usable when on a 404 page. The Post/Page pagination section works on your Blog page, Archive page etc.. It will not work on static pages. However, if you use the tag, pagination will automatically display within the Content/Loop section.

I cant even add paginations to my single blog post - it s a post that is selected as Gallery, will pagination not work with this post type?


"The Post/Page pagination section works on your Blog page, Archive page etc.. It will not work on static pages. However, if you use the tag, pagination will automatically display within the Content/Loop section."


.. sorry I'm being slow here, can you explain 'use the tag' - what tag, where'd I add it and what format should it take?




many thanks,

Hi @lazlo 


Could you create your own forum topic for this please?

why create own topic. that was on topic, and the answer I needed. Now I have to go search again. On topic posts... should be in the same location so other users are not sent on a wild goose chase. This is the problem with forums.

The topic has been resolved. Therefore, if the answer provided is not resolving the users issue, then the issue is different. Also, the topic creator will receive an email when there has been a reply. I am sure the topic creator will not like this when the topic has already been resolved.


If a section is grey out, then you can not use that section on the page you're on. Pagination only works on archive pages such as blog, archive etc.. it will not work on single posts. If you have a large post and have used the more tag then the pagination will automatically be added.

      I can't download sections. I don't find the "Plagelines Connect" plugin so I don't know how to get any extra section/addon.
      Please, help.

      Just to let you know that once again a sections content are gone after a minor change in the theme. I have told you this before and this is just to let you know that there is a problem with DMS and sections. Any section!

    • $this->opts for another post?
      By achim
      Dear all,
      I'm developing sections with dms. Is there an option to read $this->opt() from another post?
      Let's say I use post 456 to manage some data. Now I'm in post 123 and only want to show a certain teaser according to some settings in post 456.
      Would there be something like
      $other_post_data = $his->get_section_opts_by_post_id(456);or would I need to get this myself from the posts wp_options?
      As far as I know there's not much documentation about how Pagelines DMS stores data in wp_options so it might get a little tricky finding how handle those.
    • $this->opt not available
      By achim
      Dear all,
      I'm developing pagelines dms sections. Not sure but I have a feeling that 
      $this->opt('myoption')is only available in the function scope of section_template
      I tried to use it in section_persistent but could not access the data (while I could from section_template).
      When is section_persistent called? Before the data is read?
      Is there a better way of calling a function (to make up data e.g.) before running into section_template? I'd love to have as less logic as possible in section_template.
      Thanks in advance!
